Cosy Up in the Garden

Hands up who has a soft spot for a hand crafted Tea Cosy. Well you can see dozens and dozens (257 to be exact) of homemade Cosy creations at "The Tea Cosy Garden " at Bundoora Homestead Art Centre.
All the Tea Cosies are for sale and proceeds are donated to The Cancer Council's Biggest Morning Tea fund-raiser.
I am now the proud owner of the fancy patterned number below (top right). There are lots of red dots already, so don't leave it too late as it ends on the 30th May.
Tea Cosy Garden Exhibition
If you had attended the Northern Craft Bonanza a few months ago you would remember these identical twin sisters Marg and Marianne Noonan.They are the organisers and proud tea cosy wearing ambassadors for all things crocheted.So now my biggest dilemma is to find room for another Tea Cosy. As far as dilemmas go that's
not a bad one!
Some of my Cosies


  1. thanks for letting us know about this!

  2. I saw the ad in the paper when I was at Tinniegirls yesterday... have to try and make it!

  3. I don't even drink tea but tea cosies remind me of making tea for my English mummy who took it VERY seriously . . . this is fun, love Posie

  4. Oh my - are those owl tea cosies there?? They are fabulous :) I have one of a house with cotton wool coming out of the chimney as smoke but I have never seen owl ones before. I'll have to keep an eye out!
